This Rick Ross featuring song was released as the third single from the Rich Gang album. "'50 Plates,' that's a term — that's actually a street term for a certain way you get money," the Maybach boss explained to MTV News regarding the song's cryptic meaning.
Ross raps on the song's hook, "I'm dying to fill this empty safe." He explained to MTV News: "We dying to fill this empty safe, that's something that I'm pretty sure everybody that's trying to get money and stand on their own two has said to their selves or most definitely relate to."
The song's music video was directed by Dre Films and features Ross with Birdman and Ace Hood. It was inspired by a 1995 Al Pacino and Robert De Niro starring crime drama. "We just trying to do it blockbuster style with this one and pay homage to one of my favorite movies Heat." he told MTV News.
"The Way" by Fastball was inspired by the story of an elderly couple from Texas who drove to a nearby family reunion and kept going. Fastball's bass player imagined them taking off and having fun like they were young. The story didn't end well: the couple was later found dead after they crashed in a canyon.
